Our World

Some friends of mine and I went down to the Willamette River a few evenings ago and it was lovely! Clear skies, busy, but still peaceful with happy geese!!  And the boat ready to take people up the river for dinner on board!

'Tis a beautiful river. Maybe you can take a dinner cruise one of these days. Lois and I did a dinner cruise out of Tampa for our 55th anniversary. Great fun, although she couldn't understand why I left her on the dance floor to take a picture of the Tampa skyline. :)

I like the modest size of the boat … it would be lovely to have a meal there while cruising down the river and taking in the sights.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
